Summary

This project is a good introduction to creating interactions in VR. The use of a Raycaster and gaining input from the Gear VR trackpad are the hallmarks of many VR titles. For an extra challenge, try improving the project using the following suggestions or expand it with your own ideas:

  • Arrange the galleries in a ring around the user and alter the SwipeLeft and SwipeRight to move the galleries along a circular path.
  • Add a secondary text field that presents details such as the image title, artist's name, year produced, subject matter, medium, and details.
  • Have the background change when the Raycaster focuses on a new gallery.
